'What’s he done this year? Nothing': Liverpool fans fuming as Messi beats Van Dijk to Ballon d'Or
Some Liverpool supporters can't accept the simple fact the Ballon d'Or is awarded for individual brilliance, not for winning with the team (where Messi succeeded, too).
💬 Scott Davies: "Absolute bullshit!! Messi undoubtedly is the best player of all time, but last year VVD was easily the best player. I thought that's what the Ballon D'or was for?! Player of the year?! F****** pathetic from UEFA!!"
💬 John Alford: "UEFA SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES."
💬 Desmond Sing: "Fifa have disgraced themselves. He can only perform at Barcelona but cannot perform for Argentina."
💬 Andrew Johnson: "Bollocks. What’s he done this year? Nothing. What’s he won? Nothing."
💬 Paul Todd: "Well done to Virgil, second in the world is excellent. Messi may score a lot of goals but that alone does not make the world's best player. Virgil had a magnificent season and came away with a Champions League medal, and 2nd in the Premier League."
💬 hiscoming Again: "Liverpool must focus and work harder and smarter and win the Premier League title or else they might give the Premier League trophy to Lionel Messi."
💬 Vim: "Please can someone show me the work rate of VVD and that of Messi, because this is an unfair decision."
💬 Russell Newcombe: "We can be biased. Messi is a f****** footballer from another planet. VVD is a defender from another planet. Unfortunately the flair players will always get the vote. Hats off to both and also Mane who did very well too."
Does Van Dijk deserve to be second?
